Can you take a cosigner off of a car loan?
Is there any way for me to take a cosigner off of an existing car loan? My mom cosigned for me when I got the loan, but I don’t need it anymore. I’m independent with a good job, and I’d like to take her off the loan.
Congratulations on getting your finances in order! While you can’t usually get a cosigner off a car loan, you may still have options:
- Talk to your lender. Some loan agreements will include a cosigner release option. If you meet the qualifications, you might be able to remove your mom as a cosigner without refinancing. Contact your lender and ask about their cosigner-removal policy!
- Refinance the loan. While technically not removing them from your loan, refinancing can get you a better loan with better terms and no cosigners! If your loan contract doesn’t have a cosigner release option, refinancing may be your best option.
- Pay it off. This may not be feasible for everyone, but the easiest way to get rid of a cosigner is to pay off a loan! When the loan is paid off, there won’t be any need for a cosigner.

Can you get a car title loan without a job?
Would I be able to get a car title loan even if I don’t have a job? I think my job search would be more efficient if I could work from my own laptop instead of going to the library everyday. Unfortunately, I can’t afford one right now.
